Though many organisations know their buildings could operate more energy efficiently, the up-front cost of upgrading or the lack of technical expertise can put them off. That’s where an Energy Performance Contract (EPC) can make a big difference by funding improvements that can reduce your energy consumption.
Using our resources, we can create bespoke contracts that tackle your buildings’ energy efficiency challenges and give you guaranteed energy savings. Most importantly, we can do that without the need for you to make an upfront capital investment.
It’s a solution that minimises your risks and will improve the performance of your buildings and equipment while giving you a guaranteed return.
EPCs are designed to reduce your energy expenditure by completely renewing (or significantly improving) energy and water assets.
Once the improvements are implemented, the savings are ongoing and continue even after the payback period is complete.
Because EPCs focus on physical improvements, they help to improve building performance in areas like lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation and water supply – making the whole environment more comfortable for your staff.
Because there are no up-front capital costs, EPCs offer a ‘risk transfer’ solution which is further enhanced by energy saving guarantees.
EPCs are a strategic commitment to sustainability. They’ll help to reduce your organisation’s carbon footprint and improve its reputation for social responsibility.
